"A quick-tempered man does foolish things, and a crafty man is hated...A patient man has great understanding, but a quick-tempered man displays folly."
–Proverbs 14:17, 29
"Do everything without complaining or arguing."
"Better a patient man than a warrior, a man who controls his temper than one who takes a city."
"In your anger do not sin. Do not let the sun go down while you are still angry, and do not give the devil a foothold."
"A hot-tempered man stirs up dissension, but a patient man calms a quarrel."
"A gentle answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger."
